A cutaneous T-cell-Lymphoma was progressive after six different lines of chemotherapy. For local palliation total body electron-radiation therapy was performed with a total dose of 27, 5 Gy at single doses of 1,5 Gy and 1 Gy respectively. The treatment resulted in complete remission lasting for 19 months until a cardiac related death. Therefore radiation therapy should be offered earlier in the entire treatment course in order to achieve lasting local control.
